DELPHINIUM consolida ('Imperial Mix' Rocket Larkspur, Mixed)
Delphinium consolida, also known as larkspur, is a flowering plant that is native to Europe and Asia. The Imperial Mix is a particular variety of Delphinium consolida that has been selectively bred to produce a mix of large, showy blooms in a range of colors. The flowers typically grow on tall, slender stems and can reach heights of up to 3 feet (1 meter).
The Imperial Mix of Delphinium consolida includes shades of blue, pink, white, and purple, often with darker or lighter accents. The flowers are double or semi-double, with multiple layers of petals that give them a fuller, more dramatic appearance than many other types of larkspur.
This variety of Delphinium consolida is a popular choice for gardeners and florists alike, as the flowers are both beautiful and long-lasting. They can be grown as annuals or biennials in most climates, and are relatively easy to care for. However, it is worth noting that all parts of the plant are toxic if ingested, so it should be kept away from children and pets.
